My Nation Underground Vinyl
ARTIST: Julian Cope
Vinyl LP pressing. My Nation Underground is the fourth solo album by Julian Cope. It produced three singles including "Charlotte Anne". The album's music is an extension of the more commercial side of Cope's songwriting, following on from the relative commercial and organizational success of it's predecessor Saint Julian (1987). Cope's band disintegrated after the Saint Julian promotional tour, leaving only Cope and his musical right-hand man, guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Donald Ross Skinner. With the band dispersed, Skinner began to play drums, keyboards and harmonica in addition to guitar, while Cope continued to play guitar and keyboards. The other members of the core team were producer Ron Fair on keyboards plus eccentric percussionist Rooster Cosby. Other contributors included bass guitarist James Eller, ABC/The The drummer David Palmer, revered double bass player Danny Thompson and various session singers.
